Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This book is a story of the shifting path of trade between what is now the U.S. Southwest and the Mexican state of Chihuahua. It recounts the making of three separate roads to the Mexican silver mining area to facilitate the exchange of U.S. goods for Mexican silver: the first from Santa Fe, New Mexico; the last two across West Texas. The book deals carefully with sites and place names. It is not, however, a work of historical geography. It is instead ``frontier'' history, concerned largely with explorers and written for an audience interested in adventure. For regional history collections in southwestern public and academic libraries. James W. Oberly, Univ. of Wisconsin-Eau Claire
